I *think* I have everything I need:
- figures - check
- terrain markers - check (though maybe not enough)
- D6s - check
- measuring sticks - check
- marker blips - check
- tape measure - check
- paperwork - check
- rules and crib sheets - check
- tactical plan - errmmm, sort-of
So, what's on my workbench to be painted up after my break? Not a great deal:
16 light horse archers
48 javelin/spear infantry
9 armoured lancers for the command groups
These will be enough for me to have a reasonable army for now, but I still have another 24 "other cavalry", 24 armoured lancers and (gulp!) 72 protected lancers waiting to be prepped and painted.
Once they are painted up, I'll take a break from the Sarmatians and crack on with some of my SF stuff. I haven't decided yet which figures it will be - I've got so many to choose from right now. I was thinking about finally painting up some starships for Full Thrust, but I would want to be able to use spray paints for priming and basecoating and the cold weather rules this out for now. I also need to get some holding sticks to use while painting them (probably Litko flight pegs; I'll also order some other gaming bits at the same time).
